What is Beautiful Lengths?
"Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society, the largest non-profit health organization committed to saving lives from every cancer and improving the quality of life for people facing the disease. The role of Pantene is to help women grow long, strong, beautiful hair and provide the funds to turn this hair into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer. So far, Pantene has donated 24,000 free real-hair wigs to the American Cancer Society’s wig banks, which distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country."
Honors Self-Designed Experience
The goal of this project was to hold a hair-cutting event on campus and collect ponytails to donate to the Beautiful Lengths program. There were stylists available after the initial cut to finish it off and give a polished look.
